Bletschacher studied law, philosophy, and literature in Munich, Heidelberg, Paris, and Vienna, without acquiring a degree. In 1976, he published his own rather different version of the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin by the Brothers Grimm, known as a fairy tale called, Neues vom Rumpelstilzchen (English version as "Update on Rumpelstiltskin"), which is part of the children's book Update on Rumpelstiltskin and other Fairy Tales by 43 Authors, which is compiled by Hans-Joachim Gelberg, illustrated by Willi Glasauer, and published by Beltz & Gelberg. From 1982 to 1996, he was a chief dramatic advisor at Vienna State Opera. He wrote and translated libretti, spectacles, lyrics, novellas, children's books, and academic texts on music.
